A Chicago man is in trouble with the law after police in western Wisconsin discovered $20,000 worth of cocaine in his car.
The La Crosse Tribune reported that court documents show a Trempealeau County Sheriff’s deputy stopped 33-year-old Dajuan Cortez Thomas on Interstate 94 near Osseo on Monday for multiple traffic violations.
A police dog alerted to narcotics in the car. A search of the vehicle revealed 300 grams of cocaine.
Online court records show Thomas has been charged with possession of cocaine with intent to deliver. He posted a $20,000 cash bond on Tuesday and is due back in court for a preliminary hearing April 19.
Thomas’ attorney, listed in court records as public defender Russell Hammer, declined comment when reached Sunday.
